Baha’is are Unhappy


The elevation of the honourable major general, head of the army’s joint staff, Batmanghelich, to the position of lieutenant general was a source of delight to his friends but caused dissatisfaction among the Baha’is. The reason for their dissatisfaction is that the honourable lieutenant general was the front runner in the fight against the perverse Baha’i sect, and, with energy and perseverance, was involved in [its] suppression.
